Huntsville AL P&DC to Birmingham AL P&DC

November 29, 2011 An Area Mail Processing (AMP) study was initiated to evaluate the transfer of destinating mail processing operations from the Huntsville Processing and Distribution Center (P&DC) to the Birmingham AL Processing and Distribution Center (P&DC). The initial results of the study support the business case for consolidation. This study, currently in review at United States Postal Service Headquarters and its Area Office, is subject to change. A public meeting will be held to share the initial results of the study and allow members of the community to ask questions and provide feedback. The public’s input will be considered prior to a final decision. The meeting will be held on Wednesday, December 14, at 7:00 p.m., at Decatur Utilities, 1002 Central Parkway, Decatur, AL 35601.
